I was on pintrest (where I spend way too much time  Smiley )and saw the most fabulous kitchen floor made of pennies.  I decided then and there I had to have a coffee table covered in pennies and luckily I had just the coffee table to do it to.  My boyfriends sister had just closed her offices and gave us a marble top coffee table.  The marble was so beautiful I decided it had to be the top of the kitchen island leaving me with a base to a fancy coffee table.  I got the boyfriend to build a simple wood top that fit the coffee table and I went to work sanding and painting.  I then super glued $18 worth of pennies to the top of the table.  I then had the boyfriend pour thick poly over all of the pennies.  I LOVE how it turned out.  Unfortunately it does not photograph well.







Thanks for looking!

I love that color, I bet it looks fabulous with the copper of the pennies. The resin looks great too, so nice and smooth.

That is fantastic! That is quite an amazing coffee table.  And the copper of the pennies and the bright blue go together so well.

THAT is super-amazingly-awesome! Thanks for sharing and the great pics!

Question: Does the table weigh a ton? I'm thinking that bottle of pennies I have could hurt someone--and it can't be more than $3--!

I have a new-found delight in pennies and, thanks to you, can't wait to save more!

Brilliant.  I love the blue, and the pennies make a cool conversation piece.  Love it.
